Description of Cobalt Carved Decorative Plate, 9″:
Cobalt Carved Decorative Plates from Morocco
This exotic handcrafted decorative plate from Morocco will make a statement in any room. It features a spectacular cobalt blue glaze which seems to change color when viewed at different angles. As with many Moroccan decorative plates, the shape is almost like a shallow bowl, and parts of the pattern are both painted and carved into the clay, giving a unique three-dimensional effect. Hang it on a wall using the convenient pre-drilled holes on the back, or place it on a table as a striking centerpiece.
This decorative plate comes from the city of Safi, a historical center of Moroccan pottery on the Atlantic coast south of Casablanca.
Please note that Moroccan pottery is made by entirely by hand and tends to be very rustic in appearance, often including numerous imperfections which do not detract from its value but add to its charm. Moroccan designs will vary from plate to plate; as each plate is an individual work of art. Therefore, your decorative plate will vary from the photographs shown, and will be its own unique work of art. If you have a preference for a piece which contains a significant amount of carving or perhaps a piece with less carving, please indicate in the Order Comments section during check-out and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Like all our decorative plates, our Moroccan plates are lead-free. However, since Moroccan pottery is fired using traditional methods in a wood-fired oven, it is not as sturdy as majolica which is fired at higher temperatures. Therefore, we do not recommend using it for food, except perhaps light use with dry foods. It is not crafted to withstand use in a dishwasher or microwave.
Mediterranean decor idea: This decorative plate looks great hanging outdoors, especially on a stone or stucco wall. Pre-drilled holes make it easy to hang!
